I love the high-key background and the butterfly partially hidden behind the flower. In the thumbnail, I mistook it for a flower, it was a nice surprise when I opened the image.

Beautiful simplicity here- nicely designed, though I might be tempted to clone out the small leaf intersecting the larger one.

Thanks for the comments.
@Cynthia, I agree with your suggestion.
@Darren, the background is the translucent ceiling. I used +2 EV during the shooting.
